WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Blanked in Arlington

April 8 at Texas Rangers


Today's Sox Crew:
Architects
The Sox house is under major construction. While they tried to get something built, it just didn't happen against the tough Texas team.

Short Take:   Gavin Floyd surrendered three long balls and bad base-running both did the Sox in.

Leave it to the White Sox to save their worst all-around performance of the very young season for the national TV audience. The Sox had a rare ESPN appearance on this Easter Sunday and gave their typical Game of the Week performance - mediocre pitching and an absent offense. The end result of this poor performance was a 5-0 shutout.

This one was over early, but unfortunately, all nine innings still have to be played. The Rangers went up early on a David Murphy solo shot in the third. As it turned out, that was all the Rangers would need to beat the Sox. While the Sox and Rangers had six hits a piece, Texas won out in the run column.

It wasn't that the Sox didn't have any baserunners, but it was a lack of execution with runners in scoring position that did them in. In all, the Sox left nine men on base. Sound familiar? The top of the fourth would prove to be the Sox best shot to score, as Gordon Beckham led off the inning with a double and quickly went to third on Adam Dunn's ground out. Unfortunately, Paul Konerko bounced one back to Matt Harrison (1-0) and Beckham was caught sleeping, getting himself picked off between third and home, thereby killing any scoring chance. While the Sox had a couple other minor threats throughout the game, nothing ever came to fruition for them on offense.

Gavin Floyd (0-1) didn't have his best stuff, being charged with five runs (four earned) on five hits in his 5 2/3 innings of work. He surrendered a total of three home runs on the evening to Murphy, Adrian Beltre and Josh Hamilton. A bright spot for the White Sox would have to be their bullpen; Will Ohman, Nate Jones and Jesse Crain all had scoreless appearances. Jones, who made his Major League debut, did walk two, but struck out one in his inning of work.

Seeing as the Rangers are the defending American League champions, it's a good thing the Sox got out of there with one win. Next, the Sox travel to Cleveland for a three-game set, beginning Monday night. Chris Sale (0-0) will make his first Major League start and will be opposed by the Indians' Josh Tomlin (0-0). The first pitch is set for 6:05p CDT at Progressive Field and the game will be broadcast on Comcast SportsNet.

KW Appreciates The Game:
 How can this game possibly have been appreciated? A goose egg in the run column isn't good and should be quickly forgotten.
